Dallas lawyer Danny Tobey always wanted to be a writer, and with the publication of his debut thriller, The Faculty Club, he's more than achieved that goal. In fact, his publisher, Simon & Schuster, already has him lined up for two more books, the next being a medical thriller. The medical angle should be a natural fit for Tobey, a Vinson & Elkins, L.L.P. associate whose practice focuses on commercial litigation, including representing the health care community and pharmaceutical companies (he also attended the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center). Tobey is featured in a Fort Worth Star-Telegram article about his debut novel, The Faculty Club, which he wrote while still in school. The book takes place at a prestigious Ivy League law school (not coincidentally, Tobey graduated from Yale Law School) and draws the reader into an elite and mysterious club that promises its members success and fame but also holds dark and ancient secrets (read an excerpt).
"Scumbag Billionaire" is the title of the 24th Bar None variety show, where Dallas-area attorneys, judges, paralegals, and other legal professionals prove each year that the legal profession has plenty of humor and creative talent.
This year's show runs June 17-20 at the Greer Garson Theatre on the SMU campus. All proceeds benefit Sarah T. Hughes Diversity Scholarships at the Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law, for which Bar None has raised more than $1.1 million over the years.
